This was our first visit to mother india in Boldmere. We got a parking space right outside which was a great start! We came into a busy restaurant with a great atmosphere a little early for our table but didnt have to wait long to be seated. Our poppadoms came quickly and our order was taken shortly after. The food... More

Visited on a Saturday night. Have been many times over a 10+ year period. Table booked for 8.30, seated at 8.40 no cutlery or glasses on table had to ask for both. By 9.30 only food brought was popadoms. Told manager we were waiting no longer, "that's up to you" the reply. Needless to say will not be going again.... More

I 'Regard' this restaurant as very 'Simla' to other Boldmere curry establishments, however, they gained their good 'karma (lounge)' through providing us with the whole 'SHABANg' with an excellent meal and great service.

Very friendly service,excellent food, good atmosphere. Would recommend it to anyone. In fact have recommended it on several occasions and it has never disappointed. When friends come from out of the area they always ask to eat at Mother India

I went along with my husband two close friends having prebooked. We all chose different meals. My husband is vegetarian and the food was excellent and had good vegetarian choices. All our meals were excellent. Waiters were courteous and attentive. Would recommend this restaurant. Seating a bit close but atmosphere was good.

Caught with some friends and went for a curry at mother india. What am I say, the service was fantastic; bought our own drinks and were looked after. The starters were fantastic... Good portions full of flavour. The mains were sizeable with good solid flavour, must say I really enjoyed the curry. Great service, great food and reasonably priced.. It's... More
